Rate Increase And Silly Games At Capital One

Friday, April 15, 2011 - 7:03 AMCapital One Direct Banking - Details
Capital One has once again increased the APY on its brick and mortar "Simple Savings" account.  It's now offering 1.23% on deposits over $10,000.  There is also a large advertisement promoting this offer in Friday's Washington Post.  On the other hand, its misleadingly named "High Interest Savings" account offers only .8% APY for a comparable deposit.  The APY for the "high interest" offering actually drops to .6% for deposits in excess of half a million dollars or greater.
